This Lemonade Chex Mix is perfect for party time snacking, or for gift giving. It’s sweet lemony taste is over the top!
I am so super excited to share this recipe with you all today! Not only have I had to keep it under wraps for weeks now, it comes with a bonus review of Gemma Lynn Touchstone’s new book “Party Style – Kids’ Birthday Parties from Baby to Sweet 16.”
Gemma reached out to me last summer asking if I would like to be part of her Party Style Blog Book Tour. I would receive a copy of her new book, and in return, I got to swoon over it, make a fun recipe from it, and share it with all of you when my day finally came… and it’s finally here! YAY!
You all know how much I LOVE to throw a party, right?
I was instantly in love with the book the moment I opened it. I was hooked! The ideas, the recipes and the breathtaking photography made you want to pour over each and every page… then start all over again.
I had fun taking the “Determine your party style” quiz in the front of the book. As it turns out I am a cross between Visionary and Pinning Host. Not surprising. I love to pour over ideas and recipes, saving and narrowing them down to the perfect fit. There is nothing more fun to me than throwing a themed party!
Well except planning the food … am I right?
Gemma’s party recipes were so clever! I immediately fell in love with this Lemonade Chex Mix, though — you all know that I am a self-proclaimed lemon addict!
World’s Best Hot Chocolate Cheesecake Dip, Candy Skewers, Zucchini Rolls … the list goes on and on — and just when you think there couldn’t be anything cuter … she has a whole section of party foods served in mason jars!
